CBS 2 L.A. affiliate reporter Serene Branson did not have a stroke live on air while reporting on the Grammys Sunday night.
Branson was at first mocked when a video of her speaking gibberish hit the web. Later, it was reported by the U.K. Telegraph that she suffered a stroke and was rushed to the hospital.
A statement posted on her station’s Web site Monday reads, “Serene Branson was examined by paramedics on scene immediately after her broadcast. Her vital signs were normal. She was not hospitalized. As a precautionary measure, a colleague gave her a ride home and she says that she is feeling fine this morning.”
Cameras flashed to file footage of the Grammys as she struggled to speak live on air.
Wrote KNBC anchor Angie Crouch Monday on Twitter: “KCBS reporter Serene Branson is okay – hang in there girl!”
